[Intro Open Mike Eagle]

Y�all heard that new racism?

(Nah, G, racism washed up)

That new racism hard, yo

Y�all thought racism went away, it never retired

(Nah, racism wack, G)

Racism came back on y�all, yeah

(I ain�t tryna hear that, racism washed)

[Open Mike Eagle]

Racism got canceled, but just to pretend, stop

Now it�s back with a whole new season to binge watch

It�s racism 2.0 the sequel

A grass-roots kickstarter funded through Reboot

Yeah it�s available on all streaming platforms

Download it on Google Play or the App Store

It�s racism, it�s back, it�s better than it ever did it

And racism has a 90 on Metacritc

[Open Mike Eagle]

Yeah, I hear it�s up for a book deal

They say it�s CGI, I think it looks real

It�s got merch�, you can buy you a shot glass

Racism posts links, subscribe to its podcast

[Open Mike Eagle]

Yeah, it had another banner day today

Racism was trending and did a Reddit AMA

And fans of racism are doin� cosplay

With tiki torches, yellin� slurs in your hallway

Yeah, performin� best in the poor regions

And expected to win big this award season

[Chorus: Open Mike Eagle]

Thought it was washed

But it dropped a new joint, though

Went to the lab

Came back with a new school flow

Is it a bird, or a plane, or a UFO?

It�s even worse, it�s racism 2.0

Thought it was washed

But it dropped a new joint, though

Went to the lab

Came back with a new school flow

And it�s invisible, so you can say that you don�t know

It�s sneaky, it�s racism 2.0


So, racism has got a dope marketing team

They using black folks and black quotes to market they memes

When they done riding our backs, they�ll just park �em and leave

Pull the rug, they won�t even have the carpeting cleaned


Now, racism got cornrows and know it�s a cash crop

And wish it could adorn �fros or rock a big flat top

Oh, racism is down, �cause it listens to Black Thought?

And it can doodle �round with some kids in a flash mob?

Man, racism was quick to fill the video backdrop

With�blacks who mille rock but never talk like they�re mascots

And past times our futures and our bodies was cast off

Now racism has got fillers in it�s lips with some ass shots


Meanwhile, I�m over here with the have-nots

Black, a fat ass, nappy locks, writin� rap bops

Of props to my dad�s uncle, captured in padlocks

Shot by US government black ops


Racism had a pop-up shop

Don�t be sad if you missed out

I think I got the code for a discount

I heard it�s one of racism�s fanbase�s favorite phrases

Sans spaces and upper cases, “IAIN�TARACIST�

[Outro: Sammus]

I�m not a racist, I fuckin� love black people

Fuckin� love the blacks

Yeah, I love those guys

Watch the original Racist 2.0 by Open Mike Eagle & Sammus:


The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn & Open Mike Eagle is a socially aware stand-up and music series. Vaughn and Eagle took inspiration for the series and title from the term “New Negro,� as popularized during the Harlem Renaissance, and it refers to black Americans speaking up, telling their own stories and affirming their various identities to dismantle outdated assumptions and beliefs.
